Another relaxing day around here. Wow! I just realized I had NOTHING on my calendar all week!! What a nice change THAT has been! Today I didn't manage too much ... just squeezed my excercising in before I had to pick up the girls (today was a half day). Last night I managed a little more crafting, however. I had to revisit those darned party hats. I showed the card I posted yesterday to Rebecca (my 8 year old) and asked her what it looked like ... she said "trees". Hmmm - not the look I was going for! So I asked her why they looked like trees and not party hats. Apparently the "squiggles" along the edges made them look like trees. If they were gone they would be hats, she told me. OK. Who am I to argue with an 8-year-old-expert on party hats? You know what??? She was RIGHT! Lookie:
I was on a roll so I kept going ...
I saw a card similar to this next one on Facebook a few weeks ago. One demonstrator (I can't find her name now!) was holding a card that caught my eye - I zoomed in on it and HAD to copy it. ... of course that meant I first had to buy the Doily stamp that I always wondered "why would anybody buy that stamp?" Now I know:
I changed the colors to make the card a little more appearling to the 8 - 14 year old girls who will be stamping at my upcoming fundraiser. I'm thinking they'll like purple better than brown *lol*:
I think that's it for today. I'm excited to play again tomorrow while the girls are at school. I finally have an idea for my friends' birthday invitations she asked me to make. I've been thinking about it for weeks but kept coming up with a big blank. Now I think I've got an idea that will work just perfectly!! I'll share when I have it made.
Have a fun night :)
